Siemens NX 12 CMM Add News Features and DMIS Import

Available end October 2017 Siemens NX 12 for Manufacturing software introduces powerful new capabilities to boost production efficiency.  New advanced capabilities in NX CAM 12 software for mold and die machining, production machining and complex parts machining let companies achieve a new level of efficiency by digitalizing the part manufacturing process.

NX CMM enables users to generate complete machine inspection programs for coordinate-measuring machines (CMM). NX CMM Inspection Programming reduces programming time, frees-up expensive CMM machine resources and ensures fast responses to design changes. NX CMM Inspection Programming not only enables programming of CMM machines but provides visualization and analysis of measurement data into the NX graphical environment.

The new feature-specific inspection programming functions in NX 12 allows users to easily create point sets in circular patterns.  Additional new capabilities includes the import of DMIS inspection programs into NX to create inspection setups and generate touch trigger programs with minimum input.

The DMIS import capability allows legacy Robcad software users to easy transition to NX CMM.

NX CMM Inspection Programming can also now be used to analyze measurement data acquired by laser or white light scanner devices.
